Austin has started the season very strong and is getting better every week as he settles into his first year Midget. He is averaging 2.5 points per game (PPG), leading the MML15 at this point.
He is also leading the Rockets both on and off the ice. His play in all three (3) zones, in all situations and his understanding of the game allows him to excel at this level. He is a affiliate player with the MML Rockets and has played a pair of games with them and scored his first MML goal.
Austin volunteers with the Reading with Rockets program, a program where the players read to young children.
His exemplary play, approach and attitude, both towards the game - in practice and games - and in general, make him the recipient of the MML15 Player of the Month.
